Our Mission:
To mobilize congregations and communities across economic, religious, racial, and ethnic boundaries so that, in partnership, we can work more effectively for a just and peaceful society and for spiritual growth and interfaith understanding.

Thank you to our many CMM Members and friends for attending "Learn, Share and Connect..."  It was a terrific conference for learning about and connecting with Metro Boston social justice and interfaith activities and beginning to chart the next course for CMM.

From our closing prayer:

"Makor chayim, Source of Life.  We are grateful for all of you who came here today as we have listened to and shared together some important and sincere intentions.

Although differences in thought and beliefs might divide us, let our desire to serve and to repair the brokenness in this world inspire us, in our communities and within our selves.  To the holy, divine presence--- we call you by many names, we come from diverse and noble traditions.

We are seekers of truth and we are pursuers of justice for all peoples.  May our strivings and our good intentions inform us, unite us and guide us as we move forward after this gathering, returning back to our congregations, our organizations and to our families.

May we strengthen the spirit of friendship among all of us, and increase our mutual understanding and commitment to Tikkun Olam, repairing the world.

We look to a time when greater knowledge of the holy and the sacred are felt in the world that will bind us in mutual caring and joint actions as we develop more spiritual, just and peaceful communities.

And let us say, Amen."
